Photographer and filmmaker Luigi Toscano found his calling late in life and has an eventful past. As roofer, door man and window washer the son of Italian guest-workers experienced his surroundings from many different perspectives. That this ends in a career as artist is uncommon. But for Luigi Toscano it was a necessity, a necessity because there are too many visions and stories in his mind that need to be shared, need to be told.

Already with 12 years, he read books about the events during the time of the Nazi regime, too early to understand the issue properly. One reason for him to participate in this project.
